The temple was presumably built in 1746 in Ayutthaya period. It is said that a chinese merchant called Phuk was the contributor of the temple’s buildings. Wiharn (sermon hall) was a dedication to his Thai wife and Ubosot (ordination hall) was to himself.

The Buddha was later enshrined inside Wiharn and Ubosot. The temple is named Wat Nakprok after the most sacred Buddha image made of bronze in the posture of meditation under the shelter of seven-headed serpent (Nakprok) made of Mortar enshrined inside Wiharn. Ubosot originally built in Ayutthaya period style is now being modified in accordance with the later restoration.
